MR03: PN's lower arm kit (12.12.2010)
This aftermarket part is one of those "must have" if you want to just show up after a long break and drive or if you plan to go to the Worlds and compete! This is the setup. It's maintanance free! No more polishing kingpin, cleaning knuckle inserts or even applying teflon lube every now and then. Once installed, you are set! Super smooth with zero bind!
You may also want to consider investing into the upper arm, tower bar & low down knuckles. Stock plastic can be used but for precision steering, we chose to go with PN's aluminum.
low down knuckles:

The benefit of converting to this setup are:
-consistent suspension travel (bounce-rebound): because the knuckle itself doesn't slide up and down the kingpin. Knuckle that slides up and down can be smooth but it does NOT stay smooth all throughout the race.
-tighter knuckle insert: no need to open up or polish the knuckle inserts to have it "smooth". You can have a much tighter insert which means less side-to-side play that leads to more predictable steering.
-Maintanance-Free: no need to clean or lube your knuckle insert and kingpin.
-SUPER CONSISTENT & PRECISE STEERING! All because of the items mentioned above.
As for me and my friends here at FPR, we call this setup the, "maintanance-free" frontend! So, if you haven't already done so, now is the time.
I think it's also cool if we can have the extended kingpin/top spring setup with this new design. This way we can use MR02's "better" spring rates... Just a thought.
